Entrepreneurship4All@UBT - Dr. Gebhard Grimm panel member

The University of Bayreuth offers its students the opportunity to take part in cross-faculty courses on the topics of entrepreneurship and digitization as part of the "Entrepreneurship4All@UBT" project. For example, the course "Entrepreneurial Thinking & Business Design" of the Chair of Information Systems Management develops innovative business ideas which are then evaluated by representatives from science and business. This year's final pitch will take place on Friday, the 12th of July. In addition to Dr. Petra Beermann (Head of Entrepreneurship & Innovation) and Prof. Dr. Torsten Eymann (Vice President of the University of Bayreuth for Information Technology and Entrepreneurship) of the University of Bayreuth, Dr. Gebhard Grimm (Managing Partner of 3con Management Consultants GmbH), Maximilian Grimmer (MGO Launchpad - Startup Accelerator Mediengruppe Oberfranken GmbH & Co. KG) and Kay Schulz (Founder and Managing Director VIEWENTO GmbH) will judge the new and innovative business ideas.

Dr. Gebhard Grimm is more than happy to take on this special opportunity: "I am pleased to consult young people and give them constructive feedback. Entrepreneurial thinking and acting are more important than they have ever been. I personally face the challenges of the VUCA world with a combination of experience, fuzzy thinking and openness. I am in particular interested in how young entrepreneurs meet today's demands and which ideas they would like to implement in our world.

As the founder of 3con, Dr. Grimm put his entrepreneurial ideas of consulting into practice. For more than 15 years he has been developing 3con as an exclusive boutique, which together with its customers finds and implements tailor-made solutions for demanding problems. He combines his extensive experience with a constant openness for new ideas and promotes the co-creative working atmosphere in the company and in customer projects.  Personal emphasis lies with holistic strategy and organization development including cross-company optimization by value creation-oriented purchase management as well as with innovative and lasting energy and infrastructure concepts.

Until 2020, the program "Entrepreneurship4All@UBT" at the University of Bayreuth will be funded with 1.5 million Euro by the Free State of Bavaria and supported by the Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern (ZD.B). Entrepreneurship should and will be intensively promoted in Bayreuth. "Our goals are the further expansion of entrepreneurship education with a focus on digitization, the opening and tailoring of courses for students from all faculties, and more intensive cooperation with other universities," explains Prof. Dr. Torsten Eymann, Vice President of Information Technology and Entrepreneurship at the University of Bayreuth.
